You know a band is huge when they list the Fox Theater in Pomona as an "intimate club date." Of course having seen Green Day at the Tiki Bar and Alex's Bar over the years, we know the true meaning of that statement. But today, the band announced they'd be heading to P-town on March 10 for the first of three smaller shows to kick off a massive North American tour.
The band have announced the on-sale date and it's coming up quick, as in, uh, this week.
Other shows include The Marquee in Tempe, AZ on March 11th and Tricky Falls in El Paso, TX on March 13th. Tickets for all three dates will go on-sale this Friday, March 1 at 10:00 AM local time.
The band also recently announced the forthcoming release of their documentary film ¡Cuatro!, featured in the 20th Anniversary South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference and Festival, running from March 8 - 16, 2013 in Austin, Texas. The film takes you inside the world of Green Day, chronicling the conceptualizing and recording of the album trilogy and features intimate live performances that took place along the way. Additionally, the Doug Hamilton directed Broadway Idiot
will world premiere at SXSW. The film pulls back the curtain with lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong as he ventures into the strange new world of Broadway with their massive hit musical American Idiot.
The band will also perform in Austin on Friday, March 15th at the Moody Theater.
